First Lines

While investigating the website of American Book Review, I came across their list of the Top 100 First Lines from novels. This definitely something worth studying.

Great list, Cliff - thanks! And "Orlando" is on it; my favorite Virginia Woolf.

Personally, I checked to be sure the opening of Gravity's Rainbow was there--that's my all time favorite first line.
